    Just don't try to dehydrate kale! Or, if you do (and hate it) then don't pretend you made proper kale chips. It is a pet peeve of mine when people knock kale chips because they tried the dehydrated...

    You're right, so long as "where you are" is still healthy. For too many people, it isn't. It is great to be comfortable in your own skin, but not when it replaces the drive to make changes that are...

    I dunno... I think the kernel passes through because of the pericarp. I mean, hey, if it is true then great... If the potato starch I use to thicken the odd gravy is not digested then all the better!...
